This article examines suicide mortality rates & trends in Canada for first-generation immigrants & the Canadian-born population. Data are analyzed by age, sex & country of birth. Results show that 3 times as many Canadian-born men as women commit suicide, while the ratio is 2:1 for first-generation immigrants. Suicide mortality rates are higher for the Canadian-born in every age group except for 65+. Among women, the highest rate of all is for those immigrants born in Asia. (8 refs.)
